I googled the part based on my stove model # and was instantly brought to the sit to order it. Much cheaper than purchasing a brand new oven! Unplugged oven from socket, unscrewed the 2 nuts in back of oven (inside), pulled element out a bit and disconnected two screws from power wires. Put in new element, connected two screws to power wires, pushed back through hole, screwed on two bolts, plugged in and oven works better than ever!

disconnected power to range, unscrewed plate holding element to back of oven. To disconnect old element from leads a bit difficult because they are flexible. So we braced the plate on a piece of wood so things wouldn't twist. It was a little hard to find the right size nut but once found the little screws came loose with a little tugging. A flashlight came in handy. We then put new element in, reversed the procedure, tightened everything, reconnected power, did a test and voila our new element began to glow red. We were happy to save $$ on the element cost but we avoided paying for a repairmen. Great

No real problems, except for the length of the leads. Used alligator clip to hold wire coming out of the back of the oven so I did not lose them in back of oven wall. All fit great and works fine now.. Thanx, John

Had to replace the socket. Once I realized I had to move the stove away from the wall and do part of repair from the rear it went pretty fast. I removed 2 screws from inside the oven but had to remove the electrical connections from the rear. then replaced the socket, reconnected the electrical connections. and replaced the cover.

As others have written, it was simple and straightforward.. remove the back plate by removing two screws.. pull element forward until electrical wires are exposed.. Remove the two screws which attach the wires and remove failed element. Reverse the process to install the element..only difference between the broken element and the replacement one is that that the new one used machine screws instead of sheet metal-type screws.. Thankfully, the proper screws were included with the new element. Total time less than 30 minutes.

I had previously removed the old element by loosening and removing the two screws to the back wall, pulling the element out the few inches slack in the wires and removing the two screws from the wire lugs to the element. When the new element came in, I just worked in reverse - attached the wire lugs to the new element, pushed it to the back of the oven, placed and tightened down the screws to the back of the oven.

First,I removed the oven door and shelving. I unpluged the range. Then I removed the plate holding the element to the wall of the oven. I then pulled gently on the prongs until they were visable. I then pulled the plugs from each end of the element. After that I plugged in the prongs on the new element, pushed them back into the oven wall, attached the plate with the two socket screws, turned on the oven and had great pride that I was able to fix this myself! This took all of 15 minutes! It was very easy and I thank this company,"Part Select" for the DIY instructions and for having the part that I needed. Doing business with you was a pleasure and you are very prompt and kind.I am certainly recommending you to all of my friends! Thank you. Patricia
